OTWELL — An Indiana State Police trooper had to chase a man north of Otwell who was arrested Wednesday night and accused of impaired driving and resisting law enforcement.

Ringle said the trooper had to chase the driver for about a half mile before the suspect, Adam G. Gray, 36, 9204 E. 325N, Otwell, pulled into his driveway.

Gray attempted to flee on foot but was quickly apprehended, according to Ringle.
